From plain data to Hypercubes
As you begin using the Business Intelligence (BI) module, you will discover that when it comes to ease-of-use and flexibility, our Business Intelligence (BI) module has no equal in the marketplace.
Fact is that when it comes to data analysis and data mining, BI is the only product that empowers you to solve your business needs without being forced to use cumbersome and overly complex reporting solutions.
At Realtime POS we know that your time is valuable and our goal has always been to deliver products that address your business needs, increase your productivity and offer the "wow" factor that helps in operating a successful retail operation.
When it comes to data mining and Multi-dimensional analysis, an advanced and feature complete pivot table control provides retail organizations unrivaled insights into daily operations.
Business Intelligence (BI) was engineered from the ground-up to blow away the limitations posed not just by these out-of-process solutions, but to radically improve the way in which data-centric applications deliver information to end-users. With its powerful data architecture the BI Module is able to slice and dice information efficiently and provide customers with an extremely intuitive end-user experience. It delivers numerous layout customization options with total end-user control over each individual on-screen report. Regardless of the perspective, data can be rendered to answer business questions - and best of all - it allows you to focus on business rules rather than creating dozens and dozens of reports.
Business Intelligence demonstrates these principles by offering retailers like you a nearly endless set of options to dissect data yet do so in an elegant and efficient manner.
Quickly Display Table Data into Fully Customizable Slice-and-Dice Reports
Business Intelligence (BI) has the power to convert hard to read and difficult to dissect dataset information into compact and summarized visual reports, thus addressing your real-time business analysis needs. And just as important, users can easily change a report's layout visually in order to examine data from different/multiple perspectives so you never again have to foresee all possible report scenarios your end-users might require.
OLAP Data Source Support
(OLAP) data sources are now fully supported by our hypercube control. All datasets (2 years +) is loaded onto the users system and is updated as time moves forward from server side. Users can use factory layouts or create their own using the factory layouts, save it and use it in a number of different ways. User defined layouts can also be e-mailed to other users in the enterprise to view the layouts.
|Print and Export Data - Instant Cross-tab Reports in PDF, XLS, HTML Formats and on Paper Business Intelligence (BI) is NOT just about on-screen data analysis. With it, you can export data to numerous formats and render its contents to paper just like a traditional WYSIWYG report.
Data Visualization via Charting Control Integration
Business Intelligence (BI) allows the data it displays to be visualized using our built-in charting tool. This Charting tool uses the data source as its control.
Provide Different Levels of Detail for Flexible Data Analysis
End-users may not want to browse through each and every unique value and instead want to see the TOP or Bottom values in intervals such as 30-60-90 days, etc. Instead of viewing sales by each unique date, they may want to view the sales against months or year to date comparisons.
Hierarchical Data Display - Raw and Summarized Data in a Single Report
Field values are automatically arranged into a tree structure with expandable parents. End-users are free to expand and collapse child groups to see more summarized or raw reports.
Automatic and Manually Calculated Totals
Among the many features available in the component library is its ability to display grand totals for each row and column automatically.
Sort Data and Display Top or Bottom Numbers - Easily Access the Most Important Information
Comprehensive data analysis often requires a two-way approach to data navigation in that you may need to find data by a specific value or find a value by its data. This means that sometimes you need the first product to be the one with the most or least sales, rather than the one which starts with an A or Z.
End-User Data Filtering
With our built-in visual filtering option, you can manipulate reports on the fly using an easy to understand and familiar visual metaphor.
